I believe this is one of the last of the non-stadium style theaters in the Los Angeles area. It shows first-run films, many with Spanish subtitles, and is popular with Latino-Americans in the East LA greater area. It’s seen better days — is somewhat gone to seed although still quite visitable, and doesn’t draw the crowds it used to. It opened in 1977, and was operated by Pacific Theatres until May 2011, when Regency Theatres took over.

Chuck1231, not much info on CT I would stake my life on, except for Michael Coate! Some folks really throw some garbage on when they add a theater, they are not very careful at all. Even stuff found in Boxoffice, Ads etc. sometimes has mistakes in it. What can you expect when sometimes you go back 100 years.

As for me, I try to straighten things out and add stuff I find all over. Most of the time I add a question mark at the end cause I’m not sure, but I guess it’s better to post than not to. Sometimes it gets other people to comment. If nothing else it gives a general idea and is beter than nothing, which is what my wife says about me!

From the looks of it, Pacific is still running it for the rest of the week. Regency takes over Friday.

The Rivest website is being corrected to show it to open in 1977. The infomation that I had was not as accurate as it is now.

Pacific’s Commerce Theatre opened as a fourplex on March 23, 1980. It was remodelled and expanded to a sevenplex opening on April 26, 1991. Today it is a 14 plex operated by Regency Theatres. The Commerce was the first new multiplex theatre designed and built in the United States to serve the Hispanic Community.

The last time I was there (March 2016) they had torn the seats out of all the older “flat” auditoriums and were in the process of putting in new seats. If the two auditoriums where the process has been completed are any guide, the new seats will not be as comfortable as the old. The newer stadium-style auditoriums aren’t bad, but except for one or two they are on the smallish side. At least Regency seems to be trying to make a go of this theater, which is encouraging.
